Summary: Presents an examination of Israel that traces the events that led the country to its current state of conflict through the stories of everyday citizens to illuminate the importance of lesser-known historical events. It is an authoritative and deeply personal narrative history of the State of Israel, by one of the most influential journalists writing about the Middle East today. Here the author draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family's story, to illuminate the pivotal moments of the Zionist century. In doing so, he also sheds new light on the problems and threats that Israel is currently facing. As it examines the complexities and contradictions of the Israeli condition, this work asks difficult but important questions: Why did Israel come to be? How did it come to be? Can Israel survive? This is a portrait of a small, vibrant country living on the edge, whose identity and presence play a crucial role in today's global political landscape. -- Provided by publisher.
